BREAST AUGMENTATION DENVER

DPSA_BreastAugmentationBreast augmentations, or mammoplasties, can be performed for a number of reasons. For some women, their breasts never really develop, which can cause self-esteem issues and difficulty buying or filling out clothes. For others, the breasts may droop after childbirth or following massive weight loss or gain. There is also a subset of patients who look to breast augmentation as a method of breast reconstruction after cancer treatment.

In reality, women’s breasts are a very emotional issue. Since breasts are sexual organs, a smaller chest size can cause a severe loss of confidence and a feeling of diminished feminity. The good news is that breast augmentation isn’t just helpful in adding volume, but it can also provide greater firmness and put the body into better proportion. What’s more, breast implants can be easily combined with a breast lift to create cleavage, fullness and a more youthful figure overall.

The type of implant and size is dependent on your skin, muscle tone and chest wall. Dr. Rodgers takes a highly individualized approach to every surgery. She takes time to discuss how it will affect your total appearance and your future results. After all, breast implants are not for life. They do break down after time and most women will need at least one replacement after 10 years or so.
